ACC said the animal was taken to a wildlife rehab center on Long Island.

“It is inappropriate and inhumane to force a wild animal to live as a pet in a densely populated city, and there are no approved rabies vaccinations for wallabies or other marsupials,” ACC said on X, formerly known as Twitter.
